About Sidney

I have many years of teaching experience. I have worked with students from kindergarten through 8th grade. I enjoy teaching reading, writing and math. I have also worked with students with special needs and hold a special education teaching certificate. I have a masters degree in educational technology and feel that it is crucial to incorporate technology into the learning process. I have recently moved to Colorado and look forward to building new relationships with students and families.

While I enjoy teaching all aspects of mathematics, algebra is especially fun for me. I enjoy solving equations and finding an outcome.

I have taught creative writing and basic skill writing to students of all ages and abilities. I have taught students of all ages reading skills to improve their phonics, fluency and comprehension.

Through my teacher preparation program and years of teaching experience I have gained a great deal of experience with the Common Core standards and how to best implement them.

My entire teaching experience has evolved around working with students with all types of strengths and abilities in grades K-6th.

Please contact me if you feel that I may be a good fit in helping you or your child find academic success.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Common Core

My teacher preparation program focused on teaching the Common Core. I have since worked with students with different strengths and needs to differentiate instruction related to the Common Core. I have also used many different assessments so students can show their knowledge of these standards.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught students from Kindergarten through 8th grade for over 10 years now. I hold a teaching credential in Special education in Colorado and California. I have worked with students in a full classroom setting, small group setting and worked with students 1:1. I have the ability to use different teaching methods to meet the needs of elementary aged scholars to improve their academic skills in all content areas.

Special Needs

I hold a teaching credential in Special education in Colorado and California. I have worked with students with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and behavioral disabilities. I have worked with many autistic students on all sides of the spectrum as well.

Study Skills

I believe it is important to teach each students how to break problems down into smaller parts. First by identifying important information needed so they can exclude information they do not need which helps them focus. Students can also benefit through highlighting material and organization of notes and other materials. Students also need to create their own study materials to help them memorize such as graphic organizers and flash cards. I have also worked with students with special needs and hold a special education teaching certificate.
